    I was browsing the special offer models at Hannants when I found this:

    http://www.hannants.co.uk/search/?FULL=8AMC7202

    Named the 'Russian Missile 16 Ch'

    It looks to me like a souped-up version of the V1 - anybody know anything about this?

    Its 16Kh/KhN Lastochka. Cruise missile from 50's apparently. Cancelled. Air launched. And yes, it was based on V-1.

    That what 15 min of intense googling revealed.

    I bought Yefim Gordon's Soviet/ Russian Aircraft Weapons book last Friday - there's a good write up of that missile (including single-engine variants) if you want more information.
    Just let me know.
